Janhvi Kapoor was born on 6 March 1997 to the actress Sridevi and the film producer Boney Kapoor. She has one younger sister, Khushi, and two half siblings, actor Arjun Kapoor and Anshula Kapoor.
Kapoor made her acting debut in 2018 with the Shashank Khaitan-directed romance Dhadak, co-starring Ishaan Khatter. A Hindi-language remake of the 2016 Marathi film Sairat, it featured her as a young upper-class girl whose life turns tragic after she elopes with a lower-class boy (played by Khatter). The film received predominantly negative reviews, but with a worldwide collection of ₹1.1 billion, it proved to be a commercial success.
Kapoor’s next screen appearance came in 2020 when she starred in Zoya Akhtar’s segment in the Netflix horror anthology film Ghost Stories. Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express disliked the segments but added that the “only real surprise comes from Janhvi Kapoor in a solid, real act”.
Kapoor will next play a dual role opposite Rajkummar Rao in the comedy horror film Roohi Afzana. She will also star alongside Kartik Aaryan and Laksh Lalwani in Dostana 2, and feature in Karan Johar’s ensemble period film Takht.
